    The Jeep Wrangler: Saving Democracy, Making Bank

    The Jeep Wrangler: Saving Democracy, Making Bank

    The Jeep was created in the 1940s to serve the battlefields of World War II. It glided into France on D-Day, it slogged through the Bulge. Today you can find Jeeps cruising the Jersey shore, or parked in someone’s garage next to a Mercedes-Benz S-class. But it still remains true to its military roots. It’s still—defiantly—the most American vehicle of all time. So why does this anachronistic, out-of-step vehicle still sell so well? The answer may surprise you.

GTI Episode Has One HUGE Omission

You keep comparing the GTI to the GTO without ever referencing the iconic 1984 GTI commerical that covers the Beach Boys "Little GTO" in German. How did you whiff on this?
